Giving the Word FLUSH New Meaning

Hey High Rollers, have the patio door open enjoying the beautiful Southern California weather, and woking on the website.  Good news, two new sponsors have joined the fold and the NATION is growing, with 4 new members.  Found this interesting story on CNN this morning…a new meaning to the word – FLUSH!

<New Parlay Odds at BetOnline>

Talk about a FLUSH!

We’ve all heard the saying, “Throwing money down the drain,” One poker player gave new meaning to the saying “throwing money down the drain.” something I secretly say ager each crying call.  You been there?

Well,  Christian Lusardi, 42, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, flushed…literally flushed,  $2.7 million down the drain…2.7 million in counterfeit chips he was apparently using during the Borgata’s Winter Poker Open Big Stack No Limit Hold’em event.  Tournament officials became suspicious and found 160 fake poker chips, each worth $5000, for a stack of $800 grand…Lusardi flushed the chips down the toilet in a room at Harrah’s in Atlantic City.  Cops found them in clogged sewer pipes…the 42 year old was arrested…the tournament was suspended for 24 hours and eventually cancelled.

“A very unusual occurrence,” says Joe Lupo, senior VP of Operation at Borgata, “The first time in Borgata’s 10 years, anything like this has happened.” he adds.

Strange indeed, proving again, you just never know what you’re gonna find in the world of Gambling.

Listen to the report at



NEW: ‘Flashback’ with “The Irishmen”Padraig Parkinson, who finished 3rd at the 1999 main event, and John O’Shea, who was featured in the documentary The Gambler and who is known to bet upwards of $5 million a year (poker, sports, you name it)

Chief Guru, Poker Samadhi


Hey High Rollers, how are ya doing?  The snow’s flying where I’m at….gonna be a white Christmas here…Hope the Reindeer’s dress warm….today’s chat brought to you by our good friends atVegasTopDogs.com….Tony K and company, they  pick winners folks…

Alright, I want to read you a few quotes…”I’m not a prodigy, I just work at every poker hand.” Phil Ivey.  “Put yourself in a position to get lucky.”  Tom McEvoy, the 1983 world champ and former guest of this show.  “Patience is the companion of wisdom.”  Saint Augustine.  And, “No Limit Hold’em is 70% psychological, 20% mathematical and 10% magical,” that quote comes to us from our guest today, author of a fantastic new book called Poker Samadhi, designed to help you reach a new level of consciousness at the poker table….its all about divine energy and spirit baby.  She’s the founder and chief guru of Poker Samadhi, located in Las Vegas Nevada….Danielle Striker our guest today…Danielle, good to have you, thanks for being a High Roller…

Thank-you so much for the book…I just love it, keep it at my bedside.  Now,  I know a little bit about your story, a New Yorker, a Broadway dancer, motorcycle nut and now poker crazy…you had a very serious motorbike accident, can you tells us about that…

You write, “and then I had an epiphany, I realized the game of poker was a symbolic representation of life.  The way people play poker and live their lives are the same.”  I love that line…can you elaborate for us?  

Poker Samadhi, it’s a way of life for you isn’t it?

In the dedication, you say that your dad taught you that “You are where your attention is.”  That’s dynamite stuff. 

I listened to a Phil Hellmuth interview years ago, where he said its absolutely vital to be in the right head-space when you play…citing an example of How an alcoholic, deep down, may feel like he/or/she deserves to lose and therefore does…poker players put in crazy hours…crazy things happen, you make take a bad beat, the guy beside you may smell bad, talk too much…and you’re playing for cash, in some cases for a living and you need to keep your head right?  you need to think straight..with so many variables that can be tough?

70% psychological, 20% mathematical, and 10 per cent magical?

You have a close relationship with former guest of the show Tom McEvoy, world champion, author, very impressive man…how did that relationship develop?
What has he taught you about the game of poker…aside from basic strategy…the life part of it?

You guys have some big plans in 2004?

What are some common mistakes you think people make at the poker table because they’re not fully in tune with themselves…bankroll management, I assume is one of them?

In the book, you have quoted some of the games very best, some of them legends..Stu Ungar, show me a good loser and i’ll show you a loser…what was the process in selecting these quotes, was there a criteria?

The interview is slated for later today…stay tuned, Danielle Striker, a good friend of the show, on HRR>

Dogs Playing Poker

Dogs Playing Poker, Feature, www.highrollerradio.net

One to Tie, Two to Win, one of 16 oil paintings in the series by CM Coolidge

Hey High Rollers, here is the script for a recently added FEATURE on High Roller Radio…enjoy.

Play Poker Online at BetOnline>

(Wanna bet with us?  Click the banner above and you’ll be betting on your favorite team in No time…HRR endorsed, \bet Online…sportsbook, casino, poker, horse racing and more…fun and easy to use.  Bet w/ us at Bet Online)


Intro:  16 pieces, paintings commissioned to sell cigars…in the early 1900’s…and today, they are still considered American treasures.  Surely you’ve seen them…Dogs Playing Poker…yeah, deal me in…today on High Roller Radio”

Body:  They’re the taste of the working man, home décor at its finest, a suitable and treasured piece in any man cave.  They were commissioned in 1903 by Brown and Bigelow as an advertising campaign to sell cigars…and what better way to push stogies than a collection of smoking and drinking k9’s?  American classics today, ‘Dogs Playing Poker’ is a series of 16 oil paintings by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge…oh and did Coolidge sell cigars…a ton of them.  The stogies faded…the oil did not..

The collection is a masterpiece really, I mean, what poker player, what art collector, what man, wouldn’t hang an original, or even a print, like I have, on the wall in the games room, overlooking the card table.  The collection comes complete with such names as New Year’s Eve in Dogville, Poker Sympathy, and Stranger in Camp.  ‘Pinched with Four Aces’, another apt name in the series…any poker player can relate to that.  CM Coolidge is playing in that great poker game in the sky now…he’s long passed…but his work will never be forgotten,  they have infiltrated the mainstream…have become a part of poker lore.

Now, a few of the compositions are modeled on paintings of human card-players by such artists as Caravaggio, Georges de La Tour, and Paul Cézanne.  A Bold Bluff, was originally titled ‘Judge St. Bernard Stands Pat on Nothing’ and Waterloo,  originally titled Judge St. Bernard wins on a bluff…that St. Bernard was owned by a Fifth Avenue florist and his name was Captain…great poker nickname right?  In 2005, the originals of A Bold Bluff and Waterloo were auctioned off as a pair…are you ready for this?  They sold for $590,400. Wow.  And when you think about it…is there anything better than cigars and dogs playing poker?  We give that credit to Cassius Marcellus Coolidge, today on HRR.

Waterloo, c. 1906

The titles in the “Dogs Playing Poker” series proper are:

A Bold Bluff (originally titled Judge St. Bernard Stands Pat on Nothing)[3]

A Friend in Need

His Station and Four Aces

Pinched with Four Aces

Poker Sympathy

Post Mortem

Sitting up with a Sick Friend

Stranger in Camp

Waterloo (originally titled Judge St. Bernard Wins on a Bluff)[3]

Ten Miles to a Garage

Riding the Goat

New Year’s Eve in Dogville

One to Tie Two to Win

Breach of Promise Suit

The Reunion

A Bachelor’s Dog

NEW COVER:  The best Gambling Songs, greatest craps roll ever, a GERMAN pro wins his 3rd High Roller event of the year, wow, Bitcoins are UP on stock market, legend of the game Johnny Moss, how one man lost $200 MILLION and much more….poker junkies you’ll LOVE it!

In 2007, deregulation ‘opened the door to TV advertising for sports betting, online casinos and poker.”


NFL Week #11, Actor Eric Bruskotter, UFC 167 and more…

Hey High Rollers, good news on the football front today as Tony K, our main man, from VegasTopDogs.com goes 2-0-and-1, with one game a wash…the spread was three and the difference was the…draw. We had the Bills beating the Jets in a pick’em for $50 and the Under on the Skins Eagles game for $100…yes baby.  America’s #1 handicappers do it again!   Want to bet with us at Bet Online, click the banner below and you’ll be wagering on your favorite team tonight.  Be sure to tune in next weekend as Tony K picks more FREE winners for the ‘NATION’


Did you know?  Sam O’Connor, AKA ‘Silver Dollar Sam’, dealt the first ever game of Hold’em played in Las Vegas. True story, happened back in 1960, O’Connor was a dealer at the Golden Nugget.  O’Connor has written a couple of books, Tales of Old Las Vegas and How to Dominate $1 and $2 No Limit Hold’em.

Did you know?  Actor Eric Bruskotter, star of the movies Major League 2 & 3 and Dragon: the Bruce Lee Story, is an avid poker player and a regular at the Commerce Casino in Las Vegas.  Bruskotter doesn’t play in any Hollywood home games because he thinks they’re “lame”.

Did you know?  The Dogs Playing Poker painting series by Cassius Mracellus Coolidge, in the late 1800’s, consists of 16 different paintings (check out cover photo). They were painted as an advertising tool to sell cigars. In 2007, 2 of the original paintings sold for $590,000. WOW. In Poker Parlance, I would be the Call-eee, lol.

Did you know?  Dominic ‘The Dominator” LoRiggio teamed up with Frank Scoblete, another professional craps shooter whose authored several books on the subject, including Golden Touch Craps, and over the years the pair made hundreds of thousands of dollars together.  While Scoblete is one of the world’s leading authorities on dice throwing, he admits it was LoRiggio who had the golden arm and The Golden Touch.  Think about this; the odds of rolling a seven are 1 in 6.  LoRiggio once went on a 53 minute roll without crapping out, earning him $27,000 in the process.

Check out our Dominic LoRiggio feature under FEATURES tab at www.highrollerradio.net also under INTERVIEWS tab for Eric Bruskotter, of Major League 2 & 3 fame….great Q&A’s.

UFC 167 – Controversial
CRAZY night of fights at UFC 167, the 20th anniversary show…George St. Pierre wins split decision but it was controversial to say the least…Johny Hendricks, not a mark on him, says “were they watching the same fight I was just in?”  St. Pierre then announced he ‘had to go away for a little while,” and it sounds like he’s retiring.  Wow.  Evans beats Sonnen, which lost us some money, and Lawlor topples MacDonald.

Grandma ‘Golden Arm’ – Roulette Ringer – Clocking the Wheel

Hey High Rollers, a couple fo interesting gambling tidbits for you today; the story of a New Jersey grandma who beat trillion-to-1 odds, roulette player who hit three times in a row at odds of more than 54,000-to-1…and what gamblers call ‘Clocking’ the wheel…great stuff!  Enjoy.


The Grandma who Beat Odds of a Trillion to 1?


We thank truecasinostories.com for this one.  It happened in 2009, May 23rd to be exact, at the Borgata in Atlantic City and it was sensational.  The greatest Craps roll ever.

Patricia Demauro, a grandmother from New Jersey, on her usual night out at the casino went on the roll of a lifetime.  Playing her favorite game, Craps, Demauro had the incredulous crowd in stitches and those at the table with her smiling as she went the lucky streak of a lifetime, shooting dice for, are you ready for this, four hours and 18 minutes before crapping out…that’s 154 rolls!  Wow.  She began with 100 bucks and kept rolling and rolling and while it’s unknown exactly how much she made you can bet those around her cashed in and big.  Fours hours 18 minutes…, it’s the longest roll in craps history and a feat that forced hotel management to break out the bubbly.

Now, the odds of throwing a 7 are 1 in 6, 1 in 7…doing it 157 straight times, without landing on the most common number when two dice are tossed, seven, is a trillion to one.

The previous best at the craps table was rolled by a man named Fujitake back in 1989…they called him Golden Arm…and every year since his famous roll, a club that sprang up, called the Golden Arm Club,  members gather to celebrate Fujitake and that legendary feat.

A grandma named Patricia and a man named Fujitake…history’s greatest Rollers, make that High Rollers, at the craps table today on High Roller Radio.

Lady Luck at Beau Rivage

At Beau Rivage Casino, a woman placed a $5 chip on #36 at the Roulette wheel and HIT the longshot at 38-to-1 (even though it pays 35-to-1) for $175.  She collected her money and left a $5 chip on the same number.  Unbelievably, when the ball stopped bouncing it landed on #36 again.  Wow.  She won another $175 with this deeper longshot, nailing the number twice in a row, at 1,400-to-1.  Again, she collected her money and left a $5 chip on what, by now, has to be her favorite number and, you guessed it, hit it again, for a third straight spin at odds of 54,872-to-1!  This time, she pocketed the $175 and called it a day.  Three in a row!  Now, that’s a High Roller. 

Roulette Wheel Bias

Albert R. Hibbs, a noted mathematician, and fellow graduate Roy Walford, took time away from school and went to Nevada.  The year was 1949 and their aim was to study roulette wheel bias at casinos in Las Vegas and Reno.  Some roulette wheels are not properly balanced causing the ball to land in certain areas on the wheel more than others.  Hibbs and Walford were able to exploit that their mathematical “edge” to the tune of $42,000.

Note:  Nowadays, larger casinos avoid roulette wheel bias by recording every spin on a computer program, which analyzes the data and reports any bias to management.  The wheel is then serviced or replaced.




Sarge Ferris – Legend of the Game

Hey High Rollers, heartbreaker today in the Arizona game, Cardinals (-3 1/2) was up by 10 late but gave up a touchdown….so, we go 1-and-2 on the weekend after we were perfect last weekend at 3-and-0…we are still up money, listening to our friends at VegasTopDogs.com.  Tony K and Chip Chirimbes a tad unlucky this weekend…but, we’ll make a strong comeback, next week, NFL Week #11.

Want to bet w/ us at Bet Online?  Click the banner below and have fun  wagering on a safe, reliable, and High Roller Radio endorsed betting site – Bet Online!

Legend of the Game – Sarge Ferris

Intro: He was destitute as a child…the son of a Lebanese Immigrant…who grew up in Waterville, Maine during the Great Depression…his brother became a very successful watchmaker…but he, well, he became one of the greatest poker players of All-Time…a Hall of Famer…who never forgot where he came from…and his play, certainly reflected that.  The man they call “Sarge” today on HRR.

Hall of Famer, Poker Legend

Hall of Famer, Poker Legend

Body:  You could hardly call what Sarge Ferris did gambling.  He was the classic grinder…if his money was in, he had the goods.  Except, unlike, most…he grinding was for 6-figure scores…Read an article once where the legendary Jay Heimowitz, was quoted as saying, “he didn’t give away one crumb” That is a strong compliment from a six-time bracelet winner at the World Series of Poker.  Heimowitz adding Ferris never showed his cards, never gave away info…he was the consummate pro.”

Ferris played primarily cash games…a specialist they’d call him today…he only won one WSOP bracelet…did that at the 1980 series…beat Doyle Brunson, the games Godfather, heads-up to capture the $10,000 world championship od Deuce to 7 lowball.   After collecting his winnings, a cool $150,000, he decided to stake a young, brash, cocky kid….a guy nobody had ever heard of…oh, the poker world would eventually come to know this kid…very well…Sarge must have had a inkling…good players can spot other good players, right?  Right.  So, he ponied up the 10k for one Stu Ungar…and guess what?  Ungar won the world championship…also bettering Texas Dolly Doyle Brunson for the crown as world champ….good investment by Ferris…Ungar was a 100-1 longshot.  100-to-1…they weren’t that long the next year, I guarantee you that.  Ferris nearly died at the poker table…suffered a massive heart attack…his headstone is a poker table….Not everyone loved him, his funeral was well attended but one of those on hand was ‘Suitcase’ Sam Angel…Doyle Brunson said, “Why are you here? Everyone knows you and Sarge hated each other.”

“Yeah, I hated him, all right,” Angel replied, “I just want to make sure that c—sucker is dead.”

Later that year, 1989, he was posthumously inducted into Poker’s Hall of Fame…he was tight, but the way he played tight was right!  True Grinder… Legend of the game….Sarge Ferris…on High Roller Radio.

…speaking of the legendary Stu Ungar:

High Roller Radio Quote of the Day:

“Identify your opponents weaknesses.  Take advantage of every weakness they have, and exploit them every chance you get.”
Stu Ungar, from the book Poker Samadhi by Danielle Striker.

Did you know? Freehold Raceway, in New Jersey, is the oldest racetrack in the United States, with horse racing having taken place there informally since the 1830s.
Did you know?  In January 2012, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed legislation allowing sports betting in New Jersey after it was approved by a 2-to-1 margin in a voter referendum held in November 2011. The law permits any of the state’s 12 casinos and 4 racetracks to offer gambling on professional and college sports, but prohibits them from accepting bets on college events played in New Jersey, or out-of-state games involving New Jersey college teams.  In February 2013, the courts overturned that.
Did you know?  There are 12 casinos in New Jersey, all of which are located in Atlantic City. In 2011, they employed roughly 33,000 employees, had 28.5 million visitors, made $3.3 billion in gaming revenue, and paid $278 million in taxes.  They are regulated by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission and New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
Did you know?  Bob Guccione, founder and publisher of adult magazine Penthouse, gambled on the casino business in New Jersey and LOST big, more than $160 million.  The Penthouse Boardwalk Hotel and Casino was proposed to be built in Atlantic City during the late 1970s. Due to financial and legal difficulties, the hotel was never completed and a casino license was never issued.  He paid taxes on the property for years and it NEVER opened.
Bob C was a definite High Roller.

HRR Thought of the Day:

“Life is like a game of poker, you have to play the hand you’re dealt.  But, a wise player can play what seems to be a weak hand and win the game.”

TidbitDoyle Brunson won the world title back-to-back in ’78 and ’79…each time his final hand was 10-deuce…a terrible hand that he played well and tuned into a winner.  If you are dealt a Bad Beat…play your hand the best you can!

The High Roller Way.
